How to measure the inertia of an object?


The measure of inertia of an object is its mass.

Inertia of an object

  • According to Newtonian mechanics, Mass is a quantitative measure of a body’s inertia.
  • Inertia is defined as a property of matter by which it remains at the state of rest or in uniform motion in the same straight line unless acted upon by some external force.
  • The law of inertia, also known as Newton’s first law of motion states that an object will continue to be in the state of rest or in a state of motion unless an external force acts on it.
